Massachusetts State Trooper Ellen Engelhardt

Massachusetts State Trooper Ellen Engelhardt died Wednesday, June 1, 2011. For 22 years she served the state of Massachusetts proudly as one its first female troopers. For eight years she lived with the devastating afterrmath of a severe brain injury at the hands of a drunk driver.
At the time of the crash in July 2003 Tori and I were at the Fransiscan Childrens Rehabilitation Hospital in Brighton, MA and I followed her story closely.
News of her passing hits closely. Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers and please, please do all you can: spread the word, get involved-to keep drunk drivers off the road and all of our families safe.
